Thank you to Morag Sinclair for finding this photo and for allowing it to be displayed here.  Thank you also to Brendan Pollitt for sending me a copy of the photo.

Around 1913

"This early photo has a great view of the school, as well as the class.  It was taken by D & W Prophet, Dundee & Edinburgh, probably around 1913.

This photo was brought in by Morag Sinclair.  Her mother is in the photo, the 7th girl from the left in 3rd row from the back, anxious smile and dark clothes."

Here is another early photograph of the school.  This one was produced as a postcard.  Brendan believes that it was probably taken on the first day of the school, in May 1910:

Thank you to Bill Watt who attended the school from 1934 to 1941 for offering a photograph of a class at the school, taken probably around 1939/40.  I have passed on this offer to Brendan
